You can download Direct X from microsoft.com or do a search for it at www.downloads.com

If you know what type of graphics card you have, post and let me know and I can find the drivers for you in a matter of seconds

The best search engine in my opinion is, http://www.google.com. =/

Google (www.google.com) is quite good. I use it for almost all my searches

Google is great but if you need software you should really search for it at www.downloads.com it's the most reliable (and also fast)

All Voodoo Drivers can be found here:

http://www.windrivers.com/company/3dfx/drivers/index.htm

Komieko, click the link I gave you, under 'software and drivers' click 'view' then select your operating system and download the newest version, I think it is 6.2

And also download Direct X 8 from microsoft
